    Three days. Has it been drinking and eating? Pooping? If no, then it is best to be put down.

    That is what I thought but he has been holding on.. now I think he will just starve ti death, but that seems so wrong to just lets him suffer and I don't want to put it in with the other chicks for fear they will just peck at him so I still have it in the bator... [​IMG]

    I know many people on here use scissors on the chicks neck area for instant painless death, But I have never done it before and Im not an expert.
